Shakespeare saved his best for last: his final play, The Tempest, is his most magical and engrossing tale. It follows the adventures of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle abounding with fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance. When a shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, the plot thickens as his beloved daughter falls for one of the castaways. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic basket and enjoy this outdoor production from the Olney Theatre Center at the Root Family Stage. In celebration of the 65th anniversary of the National Players -- OTC's touring company of young professional actors -- celebrated National Player "veterans" will compose half the cast while current company members will take the younger roles.

My family enjoyed the performance. My 7 old daughter grinned ear to ear the entire time, and even my 5 year son giggled out loud a few times. My only quibble is with Ms. Swamp. She was a little too sexy for my taste. OK, the actor is a beautiful young woman, but did she really need to be dressed in full dominatrix regalia? Seems like making her scarier would have been a better creative choice given the source material and the audience. At any rate, I appreciate the production company's efforts and look forward to attending future performances.
